Hints and Signs of the Coming KingAlan Hill, via The Good Book Stall
Any book that helps us see Christ in the Old Testament is valuable. This short book helps show that the saying “Christ is concealed in the Old Testament and revealed in the New Testament” is true.
Taking eight well known passages from six Old Testament books, the author opens up the narrative to show Christ and his work in all its glory. Written in a readable and straightforward style, this book is easy to read, but deep in teaching. I like the way he follows the older commentators (such as Matthew Henry) and takes seemingly insignificant details to bring out aspects of the Gospel. All of the messages have an evangelistic application so preachers who struggle to preach the Gospel from the Old Testament will find this book especially stimulating. The Old Testament history is more than just history and when preached in this way makes for interesting sermons which will surprise Christians and engage unbelievers.
Sadly, some modern books fail to see much of Christ in the Old Testament. This book helps redress the balance. I hope that it is followed by another book highlighting how Christ and his work on the cross can be seen in less well-known Old Testament passages.

This book is an excellent evangelistic tool, particularly because it allows the eyes of our understanding to see Jesus through a number of “pictures” in the Old Testament. Whereas the Western world majors in abstract thought, I expect this book to find special appeal with us here in Africa where picture language is the way of communication. In that sense, we are very close to our Near Eastern neighbors. This book should be put into the hands of those who need to hear the gospel afresh in this simple picture form. I cannot commend it too highly!

On the afternoon of Jesus’ resurrection, two of his disciples, walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus, enjoyed the privilege of a lifetime. Jesus joined them and gave them a journey-long personal seminar on what the Old Testament said about him. Kurt Strassner’s Hints and Signs of the Coming King provides an attractive guidebook to help us to retrace that walk and discover for ourselves how the Old Testament points to Jesus. What’s more, you can read it, enjoy it, and learn life-long principles for your own Bible study—all in about the same length of time as a walk from Jerusalem to Emmaus. Enjoy the journey!
